FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Students at Purdue University Fort Wayne have been on campus for a few weeks now with new guidelines to follow because of the pandemic.
For freshmen and upperclassmen, trying to get accustomed to the new normal is taking some time.
When everything shut down in the Spring, Purdue Fort Wayne Junior, William Meyer, wasn't sure how things were going to go this Fall.
"It's been a lot of struggles like the mask on my face, sometimes I'll get asked to or ever so often be reminded to pull it up, but other than that classes are doing a good job here I feel," he said.
Meyer, like many others, is back on campus. He said it's been a challenge only for certain courses.
Meyer is still trying to get used to not having all his classes in person.
"Some classes don't seem to be built for online like some art classes and music classes. A lot of students struggle with that," Meyer said.
Purdue Fort Wayne has implemented a committee to help students with their transition.
Some classes are hybrid. They are both online and in person.
Some classes that have labs are limited, and the majority of classes were moved to larger rooms on campus.
All of the classrooms are sanitized twice daily.
Although it's Tin Suggs first year, having access to people made her feel good about her first year in college.
"With all of the school and all the help and the resources that we have, it's been a lot easier. I feel like there's a lot of help and everywhere you go there's a helping hand," she said.
Online learning was something she was a little nervous about, but she says being able to walk on campus and be around people makes a difference.
"I used to not be fond of online learning. I'm glad that I have the opportunity to come to the library or come to Walb and study and be around other students who are doing the same thing that you are. I think it makes a difference than being at home with parents who don't know," Suggs added.
